The RICHARD MILLE brand was founded in 2001. It was born from a deep desire to break the old rules of luxury watchmaking. The most exquisite craftsmanship, unquestionable quality standards, at the same time, coupled with the almost minimalist modern design-RICHARD MILLE successfully broke the mainstream vision, creating a brand new watch aesthetics. One new watch after another broke through all the restrictions and constraints of the watchmaking industry and was born. This shocking enthusiasm coincides with its loyal customers, a group of wearers who strive for excellence, such as the top athletes and female athletes in the sports industry, each of whom is fascinated by its creation. The maverick concept goes hand-in-hand with the cutting-edge technology made in Switzerland and pushes the brand into the forefront of the high-end watch industry with a tendency to break through the bamboo and enters this noble and sophisticated world.
Today, this three-year collaboration, this unprecedented collaboration for the Tokyo Palace, seems self-evident. RICHARD MILLE invested with all his heart and decided to support this highly prestigious and continuously innovative space for such a long period of time. Its intention is to contribute to the art, so that the fire of art will continue to flourish in the French capital.

In this dull world, the artist is doing his best Accurate explorations create new languages and open new horizons. These new possibilities often go beyond the usual territory of their environment. ‘

Since the curtain began in 2002, the Tokyo Palace continues to seek breakthroughs. It not only has a completely different opening time from other cultural venues in Paris, but also accepts various art forms such as dance, film, and video … For 15 years, the Tokyo Palace The maverick philosophy, the careful listening to the voice of the general public (approximately 640,000 visitors per year), and the heavyweight and large-scale exhibitions it brings have earned this venue a worldwide reputation and status.

This space is dedicated to the masters of famous history, so that their figures return to today’s stage-such as the 2012 Julio le Parc exhibition-at the same time, this space is also for such as Camille Henrot, Jean-Jacques Young artists such as Lebel, Kader Attia or Neil Beloufa offer opportunities to express themselves to a wide audience.
